What - a film, too? I wonder if they would keep the hairstyles/colors of various characters.

Have been looking forward to the TV anime version since I heard the news. Can't wait!

Here is the CM that Stark700 posted only you can definitely watch it in your country:


Um, who is responsible for the Ansatsu Kyoushitsu "Special" having two episodes and making it "airing" again.

Even before we have the knowledge of who is animating it (almost definitely Lerche and that Danganronpa team), who is the voice cast (almost definitely the third cast including what sounds like Jun Fukuyama as Koro-sensei just a bit before the January 2015 TV anime) what is it about (I bet it is the anime adaptation of Korosensei vs. Saiki Kusuo ~Showdown in Iruma~ crossover) and all.

It makes more sense for things which are this detached to be listed in such a way, perhaps it is just because we have so little information this is being done as a placeholder this second OVA is bound to have little in common just from telling a "secret" story that did not appear in the original manga, and it featuring "that character" and Koro-sensei...


This is completely different to the "cover some chapters from the manga" formula that the first OVA went for, not an "Episode 2" for the Assassination Classroom special saga (whatever that is) and we don't list all of the Detective Conan movies together even if they also released on a yearly basis but don't even go and separate themselves in anyway than having different stories.

Hopefully with this, my completed list will gain one more addition.

Never got around to reading it, but it's always been at the back of my mind, glad to see an adaptation coming!

Lol that CM. Nice seeing Korosensei's face covering the screen...somehow, I expected more but the bgm was quite exciting at least.

I'll probably buy one of them.

Pretty mediocre manga as far as I'm concerned, but I still like Koro-sensei quite a bit so I'm undecided whether to watch or not, guess it will depend on the length and the season..

Great manga! The anime can provide me some recapping of earlier events and some epic animation

Lol people are just butthurt that the anime is gonna sell like crazy now, the popular anything haters are out in full force.

Kishi, Seiji - Angel Beats, Persona 4, Carnival Phantasm, Humanity has Declined and Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova and Danganronpa (that's right it's good XD).

There's a reason it's selling ALMOST a million each volume cause it's gooooooood :) there's only one arc I didn't like that much but it was short so whatevs.

This is what people are waiting for! Hope it will be in early 2015.
